“First, I will say for anyone reading this review – I know why you’re reading it, and I’ve been there. I’m sending you my good vibes. What I am about to say is 100% from my heart and my absolute truth.
Making the choice to send our daughter to Veritas was legitimately the hardest decision we have made as a family and that I have made in my life. We hail from Ohio, and as if residential wasn’t enough, she was so, so far away.
I say this without reservation – Veritas saved my daughter’s life. Does that mean that treatment isn’t hard and that it doesn’t take a toll? No. It’s incredibly hard. There may be times that you ask yourself throughout the process if you did the right thing. It’s uncomfortable and it’s difficult. It’s creating change in a situation that seems hopeless and that’s crushing at times.
My kiddo spent five weeks in treatment here, starting in May 2023. She was angry with me. It was difficult. She also made friends there that she still considers family. The support of the staff here is beyond exceptional, and together, with my daughter, they altered the path that she was on in a way that I didn’t believe was possible. She has learned things about herself, and we learned things about our family that I believe we never would have known otherwise.
Additionally, the medical team was able to catch a heart defect that she has had since birth, and as a result, we are getting resolved in the coming weeks.
They understand that not every person is the same and they work to create plans that result in the best outcomes for each circumstance.
She’s getting ready to start school. She’s a different kid. She’s stepped down to intensive outpatient now – and I will just say, it’s so good to have her back. Her ED put a cloud over who she is, and she’s coming back.
Is it hard? Yes. Is it worth it? Also yes.
Love to you if you’re reading this. There is hope.”
